This is for N52 owners ONLY. Please vote yes IF and ONLY IF YOUR PUMP ACTUALLY FAILED. If you replaced it for precautionary (preventive maintenance) purposes, do NOT VOTE at ALL. This will skew the data. However do feel free to post details in a written response below.

If you did replace your water pump (preventive or because of failure), please also provide the following info:

a. year / model / transmission
b. did it actually fail or was this preventive maintenance?
c. how much did the repair cost (and indicate labor vs parts)?
d. was it replaced at indy or dealer?
e. was there any other damage caused as a result?
f. do you track your vehicle? (DO NOT reply if you participate in canyon carving, street racing, etc.). strictly referring to auto-x, road course, drift and drag.
a. '08 328i Auto
b. Failed, 155,000 km
c. $800 parts (pump, thermostat, bolts,one hose and coolant) oem parts
d. DIY in my driveway
e. Nope
f. Nope

c. 2200
D. Indy

B. Fail @ 76.5K update 12/17/2019
C. Replaced the water pump, thermostat parts cost $360 with lifetime replacement, plus Coolant $50,lost some coolants with first fix due to the lock of coolant hose's connection was not secure.
D. DIY
E. Recall repairs with blower connector wiring and PCV valve by dealer, dealer tried to proposed a $4000 repair for the valve cover gasket leaked and Oil pan gasket leaked, I removed the bottom plastic cover to check, didn't think so, it is some spilled engine oil when topping off the engine oil from previous oil changes, not a drop of oil on garage floor, no oil consumption in between oil changes.

Reached 171,000 last month on the original pump. Car was totaled, so it will be heading to the scrap heap with the same original pump. Kind of a shame, the engine was still in good shape, save for some small oil leaks.
